“Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things,
but few things are needed—or indeed only one.
Mary has chosen what is better,
and it will not be taken away from her.’”
~Luke 10:41-42 (NIV)~
Good news from the Hood family. Tommy recently had a six month evaluation at MDA and passed with very good results.
Mr. Bobby Raborn was scheduled for a defibrillator procedure yesterday and will have two valve replacements after Christmas. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
Please pray for two WMU friends from Montpelier. Barbara (and John Forshag) had a long trip with no problems, but she now has the flu. Charlene Addison has pneumonia, but was sent home from Hodd Memoria for recovery and protection from Covid. Please pray for good recoveries for these ladies.
